Run by the good people at Dekeling Hotel, this is a quiet, exclusive place, 1km outside of Darjeeling en route to the Japanese Pagoda. The four 130-year-old, colonial-style, two-room suites have antique touches and fireplaces, and there’s a nice sunny terrace. Five new mountain-facing superdeluxe rooms were recently added. It’s a great escape from Darjeeling’s increasingly noisy centre.
Dekevas Restaurant has traditional Tibetan architecture and décor is a popular place for the local people as well as tourists from all over the world. Its well-designed rooms and host of amenities ensure that guest’s stay is relaxing. Transportation is available on request for ease of commuting.
